"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine expresses its concern over the actions of the Russian Federation regarding the violation of the regime of the Transnistrian conflict zone, in particular the unauthorized transfer on June 14, 2018 of military equipment and weapons of the Operational Group of Russian Forces in the Transnistrian region of the Republic of Moldova, accompanied by unrecognized "law enforcement agencies", the report said.
